BRUSSELS, Belgium (LifeSiteNews) – European politicians protested after being prevented from viewing the contents of contracts made between the European Union and COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers.
The injections have been made mandatory for members of the European Parliament and for residents in an increasing number of nations across the continent.
Members of European Parliament (MEPs) Kristian Anderson, Francesca Donato, Ivan Sincic, and Cristian Terhes spoke at an October 28 press conference in which Terhes revealed that while the COVID injections were made mandatory for MEPs to access parliament, they had to fight even to see the details of the vaccine contracts.
“We had a lot of debate … where we demanded full access to the contracts signed between these companies who produce the vaccines and the European Union,” said Terhes, a priest of the Romanian Greek-Catholic Church representing the European Christian Political Movement (ECPM).
Quoting from a EURACTIV report from January, Terhes noted how “the contract, signed between pharmaceutical company CureVac and the European Commission in November, was made available to MEPs on Tuesday (12 January) in a redacted format after the company agreed to open the contract up to scrutiny.”
“So, you’re imposing a medical product on the European citizens without them knowing what’s in this contract?” Terhes demanded.
“Not only them not knowing, but us — we don’t know.”
Referencing the “months of tensions” in the European Parliament, Terhes displayed some of the finally released, but heavily redacted, contracts.
EURACTIV reported that “4.22% of the liability section and 15.38% of the indemnification section was found to be redacted, while 0% of the section on the processing of personal data was redacted.”
As for the annexes of the contract, containing the “nitty-gritty” details of the terms, they were redacted by 61.13%. A total of 23.79% of the entire agreement was redacted.

Nor is CureVac alone in hiding information, as in a January press release, the EU noted how after “the renewed request” AstraZeneca would publish the “redacted contract” that the two parties signed in August 2020. The EU welcomed “the company’s commitment towards more transparency in its participation in the rollout of the EU Vaccines Strategy.”
“For the European citizens to be exposed to this situation where they cannot come to work, they cannot enter a store, they cannot go with their kids to schools, where they cannot freely move from one country to another, unless in one situation, if one is vaccinated – this is unheard of,” Terhes added.
“The difference between tyranny and democracy is very simple,” he continued. “When the government knows everything about you, that’s tyranny. I know how it is, to live in tyranny. When you know everything about your government, that’s democracy.”
“So, this is where we are right now. Freedom and liberty [are] one generation from extinction. We live in that kind of time right now, and it’s our duty and our call to fight for liberty.”
On November 24, Terhes renewed his demands in the European Parliament that the EU publish its contracts with the vaccine manufacturers, asking “since the contracts signed by the Commission with the vaccination companies are not published yet, how can this House exercise its mandate?”
“Who is liable in the event people have side effects from these vaccines?” he asked. “And lastly, when are you going to publish these contracts so that all Europeans will know what they contain?”
The group of MEPs had already joined forces the week before at an October 20 press conference entitled “Defending fundamental rights by opposing the misuse of [the] Digital Green Certificate,” in which Donato lamented that the European Charter of Human Rights had been “obliterated.”
Commenting on the refusal to publish an unredacted version of the contracts, Robert Bridge wrote how “medical consumers are being treated like second-class citizens for simply wanting more information before they agree to be injected with something.”
The influence of vaccine manufacturers on political bodies was further noted in an in-depth October 19 report published by non-profit consumer advocacy organization Public Citizen. It detailed Pfizer’s massive power over world governments, shining a light on the Big Pharma titan’s ability to hide crucial information and protect itself from liability while maximizing profits.
Public Citizen revealed how Pfizer negotiated contracts with nations to ensure that the company retained the right to actually “silence governments” while funneling disputes through private arbitrators rather than public courts.
One instance of this was in the U.K., where “[a] secret panel of three private arbitrators — not a U.K court — is empowered under the contract to make the final decision” in the event of a contractual dispute with Pfizer, while “oth parties are required to keep everything secret.”
Terhes spoke with LifeSiteNews recently, warning that European leaders are “following the examples of Stalin” and changing the continent “from a democracy to a tyranny.”
